Inspirational Song & Video - Colbie Caillat - Live It Up

 
 
I love finding and listening to inspirational songs and videos, and right now I'm loving this one by Colbie Caillat. I regularly listen to two of her other inspirational songs: "Think Good Thoughts" and "Dream Life Life," which I also recommend checking out. This song "Live It Up" from her new album "Gypsy Heart" contains some lyrics that I really love, so I made some screen captures of the video to highlight them below. The full lyrics are also below. I hope this song and video inspires you as well. Enjoy :)
 
 



 
 
Live it up up I
Live it up up I
Live it up up I
 
A thousand people stood in line
To hear a couple words of mine
Afraid I would miss a beat
And everyone is watching me
I don't know why I'm still afraid
It's not like it was yesterday
I'm the one stopping me
From all the I want to be
 
It's ridiculous
The stars are inconspicuous
I told myself this can't be how I think
It's irrational
It seems so supernatural
I'm happy every after all I've seen
 
I'm unstoppable
I drop kick impossible
I live it up, live it up, up I
I live it up, live it up, up I
I break down the walls
I back hand and smash em all
I live it up, live it up, up I
I live it up, live it up, up I
 
Live it up, up I
Live it up, up I
 
Don't know why my stomach drops
Like jumping off a mountain top
I used to be fearless when, I had my safety net
Wake up my heart is beating fast
'Cause I ain't got no strings attached
Free to go anywhere, everywhere
It's just that I don't know where
 
It's ridiculous
There thoughts are inconspicuous
I told myself this can't be how I think
It's irrational
It seems so supernatural
I'm happy every after all I've seen
 
I'm unstoppable
I drop kick impossible
I live it up, live it up, up I
Live it up, live it up, up I
I break down the walls
I back hand and smash em all
I live it up, live it up, up I
Live it up, live it up, up I
 
Live it up, up I
Live it up, up I
 
No I'm not afraid
No I'm not afraid
Live it up, up I (No I'm not afraid)
No, yeah, yeah
 
I'm unstoppable
I drop kick impossible
I live it up, live it up, up I
Live it up, live it up, up I
I break down the walls
I back hand and smash em all
I live it up, live it up, up I
I live it up, live it up, up I
 
Live it up, live it up baby
Live it up, live it up baby
Live it up, live it up baby
Live it up, live it up baby
Live it up, live it up baby
Live it up, live it up baby
Live it up, live it up baby

Motivational Signs and Sitter blocks

 
Lately I've been feeling more drawn to motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings to use in my artwork and signs. I've been loving the "You Got This" saying to motivate me in my studio. This is the version I made for myself. It features a hand drawn sun image in the background, with hand lettering and doodling on the sides.


 
These are the new signs available in my Etsy shop. I love the saying "Just begin," because sometimes getting started is the hardest part of working or creating. Once you get going, at least for me, it seems to go pretty smoothly and quickly...I just have a hard time getting started, and I'm sure I'm not the only one with that problem :)


 
I am also loving the phrase "Shake It Off," as so many other people are too! Cause the haters are gonna hate :) "She Who Dares Wins" is such a good reminder to put yourself out there, that you can't accomplish anything if you don't try. Usually I lean towards creating with color, but black and white just goes with everything. And the chalkboard look is so cool and popular, so I decided to start making black and white "chalkboard look" versions of my signs too. I've also been really into the doodling look, so I will be focusing more on the hand drawn look as well, compared to the use of more computer fonts on my previous signs.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a great day!
